Continuous radiation working-level detectors.
Denver, CO: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, IC 9029, 1985 Jan; :1-20
The Bureau of Mines has used gross alpha and gross beta detectors to continuously measure radiation working levels for a number of years. During this time, imrovements have been made in the design and performance of continuous working-level (cwl) detectors. This report discusses the improved designs and some of the operating principles and applications of cwl detectors in the measurement of radon daughter products in mines and dwellings.
